[Bug 1036752] Re: [quantal] [regression] Gnome Classic has no compiz plugins loaded


Alright, ideally I would use gsettings, but I cannot figure out how to
set up the default plugins without running some sort of script in the
user session to set the keys if they are not already set.

So, my thought is that we can just use the ini backend but with the
attached patch to compizconfig/libcompizconfig/backend/source/ini.c.

This patch allows compiz to fallback to a .ini profile in
/etc/compizconfig/ to read settings if the value is not already set in
the user .ini file in ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/. With the
addition of a simple Default.ini to /etc/compizconfig/ such as:

s0_active_plugins = core;composite;opengl;compiztoolbox;decor;vpswitch;snap;mousepoll;resize;place;move;wall;grid;regex;imgpng;session;gnomecompat;animation;fade;workarounds;scale;expo;ezoom

the Gnome Classic session will load up with a nice default set of

Technically it only needs to fallback for a List option to fix this
issue, but I added them all anyway. Probably needs some testing and
perhaps fixing.
